all you need is a 6tooth pinion...(rc4wd) a 64 spur gear a 27T (ROAR) motor and some dirt tires spikes or V paddles and hubs for your new wheels ,,,,,,maybe (2) 1/4" flanged bearings for the axle so how much is that?
you already have the front tires (those are on mine) a body, a hitch, an esc probably and a 6 cell battery and some weight (lead) to bring it to 3# total

What hitch are you using? In the article there using a post in place of the wheely bars. And just hooking to that. And are those the only tires you can use ? I'd like to see the rc4wd pullers on one. I'm thinking about adding this class but need to find readily avalible rear wheels for our guys. That's me ( joe) asking the questions on that write up.

Hey, that post is the stock wheelie bar. That is the stock location per NRCTPA rules.

As far as tires.. this has been my issue as well.. they pop up every few weeks on ebay.. but they can be HARD to find.. The wheels/hubs were just my personal solution.

I've heard of people using Outlaw's 12mm hex adaptors and running 2.2" rear 2wd Buggy tires (like a Bowtie or something).

I believe the TLT tire is outside of the rules for this class in terms of dimensions. Not to say you couldn't write your own for your club..

Thanks for reading! Appreciate the comments.

Also, if I did it over again, I'd probably try the Outlaw hubs..

If you look up hornet or grass hopper tires . Some pop up that look exactly like the prolines . Buuuut they want 40 bucks for them . So the tlt tires are larger that what your running ? I think that's what we'll run. Since there easyer to find. Do we'll just tweak the rules a bit.

Thanks those pics help a lot. I think we'll run the tlt's . And just bump up the size of the spur gear aloud to use a bit.

gotta use that stock digger chassis
Rear tires are to be a maximum 3 ?" diameter, and a maximum of 2" wide. Front tires are to be a maximum of 2 ?", the stock tire size. The minimum front tire size is 1 3/8"

I used these Losi step pin buggy tires on mine LOSA7378S. They fit within the class specs but I have yet to try them out pulling.
3 trucks sitting on the bench waiting to run. Too many things happening to make it to a pull but we are determined to make it to one as soon as things slow down around here.

Pulling Digger

Questions: Can you legally expend the width of the rear with extensions? I thought the Digger has to be basically stock except for the tires. Just ask'in that's all.

Just Aski'in Digger Puller

Just ask'in: Don't the batteries have to be in the stock location not in a tray above the stock location. Don't want people to get DQ'ed in a protest.
